Have a question about pump enclosures or covers? Here's everything you should know about pump enclosures, why they're necessary for keeping pump equipment safe, and why you should go with Safe-T-Cover for your pump cover needs.
With a Safe-T-Cover pump enclosure, maintenance is hassle-free and years of performance all but assured.
Steel is a popular choice for pump enclosures and covers due to its durability and strength. It is often used for heavy-duty applications where protection from environmental factors such as corrosion and impact is required.
Aluminum is lightweight, corrosion-resistant and is commonly used in applications where weight is a concern. It is often used for pump covers where easy access is required, as it can be easily removed and replaced.
Fiberglass is a popular choice for pump enclosures and covers due to its low cost and resistance to corrosion and chemicals. Fiberglass' lifecycle and durability, however, is very limited.
Plastic pump enclosures and covers are often used where cost is a concern and protection from environmental factors is not critical. They are lightweight and easy to work with, but deteriorate over time under the sun, can warp or brittle and only provide limited protection from the elements.
Concrete pump enclosures and covers are often used in applications where protection from environmental factors such as fire is required. They are durable and provide excellent protection, but can be heavy and difficult to work with, and often is a permanent solution that requires a construction permit and limits access and serviceability.
Wood pump enclosures and covers are often used in applications where aesthetics are important, such as in residential or commercial settings. Wood is easy to work with and can be customized to match the surrounding environment, but does not provide robust protection from fire or the elements.
The advantage is clear: Our aluminum pump enclosures are the best option in any use case for access, protection, durability and value.
Pump type and size: The enclosure or cover should be compatible with the pump type and size. Different pumps may require different types of enclosures or covers.
Environmental conditions: Consider the environmental conditions in which the pump will be operating, such as temperature, humidity, corrosive chemicals, and exposure to the elements. The enclosure or cover should provide adequate protection against these factors.
Accessibility: Consider the accessibility requirements for maintenance and repair. The enclosure or cover should be designed in a way that allows easy access to the pump components when necessary.
Safety: Consider the safety requirements for the pump and its surroundings. The enclosure or cover should be designed in a way that prevents unauthorized access and protects against potential hazards.
Material: The material of the enclosure or cover should be compatible with the pump and the environmental conditions. For example, if the pump is exposed to corrosive chemicals, the enclosure or cover should be made of a corrosion-resistant material.
Aesthetics: Consider the aesthetics of the enclosure or cover, especially if the pump is located in a visible area. The enclosure or cover should be designed to blend in with the surrounding environment.
Cost: Finally, consider the cost of the enclosure or cover, including installation and maintenance costs. The enclosure or cover should provide adequate protection at a reasonable cost.
